The St. Joseph Prayer to Sell A House
In the Catholic tradition, Saint Joseph is considered to be the patron saint of workers and was declared by Pope Pius IX that he is also the patron saint and protector of the church. He is also considered a role model for parents, which is why Catholics often pray for Saint Joseph or Novenas for protection, vocation, happy marriage, death, and help sell houses.

What is the St. Joseph Prayer
In all the four gospels (Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John), Joseph is described as a silent man, but he is also a man of great faith. He is one of the most famous saints, and it is rumored that he died in the arms of Jesus and Mary. This is the same person who was appointed to raise the Son of God as the husband of Mary. Many lower men will leave their girlfriends as virgins, but Joseph has an unshakable faith. Because Joseph was so respected, Pope Leo XIII published a series of letters in 1889, naming Jesus’ stepfather as the patron saint of the church.
However, prayers dedicated to this pious man of God have existed for more than 1900 years. Earlier records indicate that this short prayer was written in 50 AD. However, the earliest known record of people actually using it can be traced back to about 500 years ago. There is no scientific explanation for the working principle of prayer, but it seems to be related to having friends in high places. Joseph resurrected Jesus, and praying to him seemed to be a clear way to bring miracles to those in charge.
How does ritual prayer work?
The Burying of the Statue
In the 1500s, a group of nuns in Europe were looking for more land for their crops and livestock. Apparently, they recited the prayer of Saint Joseph and buried a medal bearing his image. The prayers of the nuns got enough land to support their monastery. This is the origin of the ritual of burial representing the saint. More than 500 years ago, these nuns demonstrated the power of prayer in real estate, and thousands of other nuns had similar successes. The ancient sacrificial rituals were considered sufficient to appease higher powers. The Internet is full of stories of people praying after burying the statue, and they are not as religious as nuns.

St Joseph’s Prayer to Sell a House After Burying the Statue
O, Saint Joseph, you who taught our Lord the carpenter’s trade, and saw to it that he was always properly housed, hear my earnest plea. I want you to help me now as you helped your foster-child Jesus, and as you have helped many others in the matter of housing. I wish to sell this [house/property] quickly, easily, and profitably and I implore you to grant my wish by bringing me a good buyer, one who is eager, compliant, and honest, and by letting nothing impede the rapid conclusion of the sale.
Dear Saint Joseph, I know you would do this for me out of the goodness of your heart and in your own good time, but my need is very great now and so I must make you hurry on my behalf.
Saint Joseph, I am going to place you in a difficult position with your head in darkness and you will suffer as our Lord suffered, until this [house/property] is sold. Then, Saint Joseph, I swear before the cross and God Almighty, that I will redeem you and you will receive my gratitude and a place of honour in my home.
